    I have run everything on that list except for the Dick Cepec and Pro Comp. IMHO the best money spent on a tire that will perform AND last any length of time at all. They were the ONLY tired EVER to survive one 10-15 day Christmas tree hauling season without needing to be changed immediately after the season was over. Only problem I have lately is finding them avaialble, there for a while they were on national back order and three months out so...

    I'd say the bf mud terrain, had them on my jeep, much better in the mud than the terra grapplers I have now

    I have had great luck with the Toyo M/T, quiet ride great traction and I get about 45K miles out of them. I am not a Michelin guy so I wouldn't buy BFG's. Out of what you have listed I would go with the Hankooks, I currently run the Dynapro ATM RF10 and I will buy another set.

    You don't state what kind of driving you want to do, where, or what model your Tahoe is. Assuming it's a Tahoe.

    You should give info like this:
    My Tahoe is a 2003 Z-71. It lives in SW Iowa. In summer, it pulls a boat on the highway. Otherwise, it's driven on the road mostly when the roads are bad (ice/snow), an occasional road trip (mostly have a car for that), or to go anywhere on our hilly property, in the forest, dry/mud/snow. It pulls stumps and timber, hauls deer out of the woods, and climbs to high-mountain trout lakes.
    Mainest concerns are snow that can be up to the floorboards, and we want a quiet ride on pavement.

    With this kind of info, you can get very good, specific recommendations. For the above, there are only two tires that fit what I want: Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo2, or Firestone Destination AT.

    Michelin... Best tires I have ever owned... Get the best and they will cost, but you get what you pay for is what they always say... Not sure on the exact ones I purchased, but they blew away the Duellers that came with my 2005 Tahoe for handling, and stopping in rain and snow...

    Just put Continental crosscontact Lx20 on mine and I have literally never loved a tire so much. I got a great deal on mine, and they can be pricey, but now that I have experienced them I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again at full price.

    I have Bridgestone tires with a load rating of 121 which is important. As well there is a new class of tires called "All weather" they are true all season tires and at times are cheaper. When I buy new tires I will be buying Nokian tires as they make hakapalleta tires which some police forces use. Only thing is hakapalleta is winter only.

    There is also a new breed of tire out. The all weather. Quite a few all weather tires have better performance in winter. Currently I have 2 year old BFG on my 2004 Yukon Denali XL. They are good tires though

    Just installed some on my tahoe today! I liked the reviews so I figured I'd try them.
